It’s time for kids to take a break from the TV and the computer and go back outside!
On May 19, 2011, Governor Pat Quinn proclaimed the month of June as Leave No Child Inside Month in the State of Illinois.
One of the greatest gifts you can give your children is a love of nature. Blue Island Model Community partners encourage local families to come out to a June Leave No Child Inside Month event and rediscover with your family the joy and wonder of outdoor exploration!

Chicago Wilderness Alliance Events
The Chicago Wilderness alliance is celebrating by offering a series of free, family events featuring lively activities — like catching-and-releasing fish, playing with mud, and building a fort – designed to nurture children’s sense of wonder and appreciation for nature and to help parents and caregivers feel more comfortable guiding outdoor play and recreation during future trips to local parks, preserves, and nature areas.
